the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014 and then, again, on January 1st of 2016, with familiar faces behind the counter ! It is mostly the same menu and store layout.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market.  They have on hand some delicious cookies, and brownies (baked in house) ::::  check out the counter ! They also bake Pizza to order. The coffee service and soft drink dispenser has been moved to the back of the store and there is a nice table that seats four.

  New on this site will be periodic updates on the History Page. Today: the Hord Family details taken directly from the 1984 edition of the Creston History. There is a copy inside the local Library ! After arriving in 1986, I bought the book, eventually, from Nancy Ryan around 1992. The 1994 edition was available for sale from the History Book committee and the brand new Country Store ! I am so happy to have made that investment. The 1994 edition has disappeared from the local Library, sadly.
